Welcome collaboration on law enforcement center

It’s good to see city and Sedgwick County officials communicating about a new law enforcement training center. A joint tour last week of the outdated facility at 37th Street North and Meridian underscored the need to act soon. The governments should try to stick to their earlier commitment to join the Kansas National Guard and build at the new Heartland Preparedness Center at K-96 and I-135, and try to scale back the original plan and $30 million shared cost to fit their current budget challenges. County Commission Chairman Jim Skelton’s (in photo) idea of a design to allow expansion makes sense. But officials need to get moving on the project.
